I stayed in this hotel at the beginning of February 2012. It is a lovely large Victorian mansion that has been converted into a hotel. It is about a 10 minutes walk from the main downtown strip on Princess St.
The positives of this hotel are the decor, the spacious rooms with high ceilings, the light breakfast provided in the morning that consists of a toasted English muffin, fruit, orange juice and coffee, free wifi, a sitting room with a warm fireplace, comfortable beds, and free parking.
In addition the staff was incredibly helpful from giving directions and restaurant suggestions to letting me switch rooms because the first one was cold. They were friendly and courteous. It was a pleasure interacting with them.
That being said there are some cons to a stay at this hotel. My room was on the second floor and, as I had feared, the footsteps of the person above me on the creaking floor seriously disturbed my sleep in the mornin at around 6 am. It sounded like the person was packing, but the walking about went on for at least twenty minutes. In addition the rooms are heated by radiators which cannot be individually adjusted, so the use of a space heater is sometimes necessary (one is provided in the room).
That being said, the hotel is definitely romantic and I would consider returning for a weekend get-away.
